As I Cee It

baking: mother’s day edition.

Posted on: May 25, 2013

My last adventure in baking was the No Bake Raspberry Cheesecakes. It was Mother’s Day weekend, and I also planned to bake something for my mother that Sunday morning. I decided on Joy the Baker‘s Cream Cheese Pound Cake from her cookbook. I had to go out and buy aluminum loaf pans because my sister someone stole my loaf pan. The recipe is for a 9×5 loaf, which was no problem until my pan was liberated from my kitchen, but the ones I bought were 8×3 or some other not correct measurement. As such, I ended up with too much batter and tossed what remained in the cupcake pan. To go with the pound cake, I made whipped cream topped with the raspberries left over from the cheesecake.

I’m not sure if it makes me sound snobby, but I don’t much care for store bought whipped cream anymore. That’s why I usually keep heavy cream on hand. I might eat store bought desserts and cakes made out of a box, but the whipped cream is made in house every time. I used to go by a recipe in Delicious Pastries, but now, I eyeball it and it works out pretty well. For your first attempts at making it, you might want to follow a recipe.

Looking at this picture, it’s easy to see why I’m not a food photographer… or photographer of any kind, actually.  The pound cake was REALLY good.  My mom loved it and shared some with her sister the next day, and she loved it, too.  And, yes, I still call my mother, Mommy.  What’s it to you?!

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
